Queensland Mint presents the 1998 1oz American Eagle Gold Coin from the United States Mint.

This Gold Coin recalls the famous American political and sex scandal which involved then-President Bill Clinton and a White House intern Monica Lewinsky that took place in 1998. Their sexual relationship lasted between 1995 and 1997. Clinton said that "did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky" but an investigation led to charges of perjury and to the impeachment of Bill Clinton in 1998 by the United States.

Coin Highlights:

  • Gross weight of 33.9g comprised of 917 purity Gold
  • Contains 1oz or 31.1g of Pure Gold
  • Larger. stronger and more durable than pure coins
  • Government guaranteed weight and purity
  • US legal tender status
  • Minted at West Point, N.Y.

Obverse: Adapted from Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ famed Gold Double Eagle design, which features Lady Liberty walking confidently against the sun’s rays.

Reverse: Designed by Miley Busiek showing a male bald eagle in flight carrying an olive branch to his nest, where a female awaits with her young.

**Please note under Austalian Law American Eagle Gold Coins (whilst containing a full ounce of gold) also contain 8.3% Copper and Silver making the coins larger and stronger. This is tradtional for gold coins designed for circulation becuase 9999 gold is very soft and easily damaged. Notheless due to the 917 purity American Eagle Gold Coins attract a 10% GST. This Tax is included in the final price. This also applies to South African Krugerrand Gold Coins from which the American Gold Eagles were copied.
